Shouldn't the dots on the continent change to green once guessed also? Not just the ones in the ocean.

I think that too - surely the dots should go green, not the countries?

Yes, that was how it was intended to work, and it is fixed now.

I would have the dots go green, and require to type each South African capital etc. Also, the way it currenly is Rwanda-Burundi-Swaziland-Lesotho are hardly visible because they are mostly 'covered' by dots

Yes, I tried that, too. If it is accepted in the Capitals of the World, it should be here as well.

Interesting to note that already the new capital of Burundi is no longer the least well-known African capital.

Dodoma and Djibouti are out of order and Cotonou should be accepted on this quiz. Also, I think the idea for making people type each individual South African capital is a good idea, seeing as they are all marked by different dots.

Dodoma and Djibouti are out of order and Cotonou should be accepted as a capital of Benin

The capital is Porto-Novo. Yes, Cotonou may act like the capital in most cases, but the country recognises Porto-Novo as the capital!

I would like if we had to guess all three South African capitals, it would test more our knowledge!
